281 Ethiopians who have been in Saudi Arabia on Friday evening arrived at Bole International Airport. The Ethiopian News Agency reported that all of them are male.

The Ethiopian Embassy in Saudi Arabia coordinated with the Ministry  of Foreign Affairs.

Ethiopians face issues in connection with, among other things, residence permits and were subjected to harsh conditions in prison.

In a related development, about 80 Ethiopian who have been in prison in Tanzania will be returning to Ethiopia within the next two weeks — as disclosed by the Ethiopian Embassy in the country. The International Organization For Migration (IOM) is involved in the coordination of their return.

    May this be an INITIAL EXAMPLE to ALL AFRICANS, leading to the RESPECT, LOVE AND DEDICATION to AFRICA by AFRICANS. THAT WOULD BE THE DAY. The SPIRIT of NELSON MANDELA , AND OF OTHERS LIKE HIM, WILL REJOICE.

    I can’t help asking myself: why is it that WE AFRICANS have a degrading outlook for our own birth place but ‘eternal’ admirations and worshiping for other countries. BUT THEN, I SHOULD HAVE ASKED MYSELF THAT QUESTION A LONG TIME AGO. AH!!! THE TRAGEDY of AFRICA.
